The Loft is even better than in the pictures. The location was super convenient and I always felt safe walking my dog in the area. Loved visiting Providence and exploring Rhode Island!

"Artist's Loft" is as advertised. It is very large and stylishly decorated in retro style without being over the top. The bed, which is a futon style, was EXTREMELY comfortable. Although only my wife and I stayed there, the loft has two pull-out sofas with curtains for privacy around the sleeping area. We didn't do any cooking, but the kitchen seemed to be fully stocked. The bathroom has two sinks, which was great, and a great shower with excellent water pressure. In terms of location, the Jewelry District was a bit of a different experience. We have stayed in Providence many, many times, but never in that area. We were delighted to note a number of good quality neighborhood bars and restaurants. We did not rent a car and walked everywhere, including up to College Hill (Brown U) and around town. I think the price may have been slightly higher b/c it was Family Weekend at Brown, but it was still less expensive than the hotel rooms in town. Overall, I highly recommend this rental. Our experience was excellent.

Our installation was cancelled because of the weather so I ended up not needing to stay at the apartment. But Ken and Kathy were extremely responsive, thorough and helpful. I look forward to staying with them soon!

Ken's place is a very spacious, open-layout loft. The area is somewhat hip commercial/industrial, with a few restaurants within walking distance (Olga's Cup and Saucer great for breakfast) and not far at all from downtown. We were visiting our daughter at PC, which is about a 7-8 minute drive. There are no bedrooms per se, but more like 3 sleeping areas with long curtains for privacy. Would have rated a 5, but the 2 queen pullouts are not as comfortable (as expected) as the king bed, and for a larger group, the 1 bathroom can be challenging. Overall, a good value, especially if you're looking for something different in a somewhat quieter, non-residential neighborhood.

My friends/family had a great stay at Ken and Kathy's place! The artist loft has so many beautiful feature like a fireplace, pool table, balcony and amazing bathroom. Was a quick walk to most of what Providence has to offer. I'd love to visit again when we come back to town.
